Thanks, I checked out you thumb nail.
My old oil can says:
API service CJ-4/MS
With blank lower portion
In your opinion, is this ok?

Went looking for the definition for API CJ-4 spec. API Service Category CJ-4 describes oils for use in high-speed four-stroke cycle diesel engines designed to meet 2007 model year on-highway exhaust emission standards as well as for previous model years.

Your bike is meant to use API spec SG, SE, or SF. In today's API spec probably API SN spec. I'd go looking for an oil that is API SN spec with no additives (lower half of the API donut blank). Just my opinion.
